Whether you're a grilling guru or the occasional weekend griller, we’ve rounded up 5 of the newest and most awesome grilling innovations that save time, add flavor or make cooking for family and friends even easier. Oh, and you’ll find ‘em all at Burlington at a fraction of the price!
YOU HAD US AT CHEESE
How do pro grillers get that perfect melt on cheese? With a melting dome, of course! Brand new to home grillmeisters everywhere, these sleek domes help food (and cheese!) cook more evenly every time. It also traps the smoke of a grill so that everything is infused with delicious smoky flavors.
Grill Tip: Use the melting dome to grill veggies, too. The fire brings out their natural sugars while the dome keeps moisture from evaporating. The result? Juicier veggies with all the char and flavor of the grill.
ON A ROLL
Skip the endless pounding. These stainless steel gizmos up the “steaks” when it comes to prepping for grilling. They effortlessly tenderize meats with just a roll, allowing foods to absorb seasonings and spices more efficiently.
Grill Tip: Salt steaks 1 hour before grilling using coarse sea salt or kosher salt. This simple trick turns meats from tough and chewy to fork tender.
YOU’VE BEEN SKEWERED
Ahh…the summer classic. There’s just nothing quite like corn on the cob, especially when grilled. Those charred, browned, nutty bits are irresistibly craveable.
Sure, grilled corn is delicious. But it’s not always the easiest to turn piping hot corn on the grill without your fingers getting in the way. Until now.
These extra-long skewers are just the thing for making sure your sweet corn is perfectly cooked on all sides while keeping hands a safe distance from the flame. Cool-touch handles make it a snap to flip and turn.
Grill Tip: Add extra kick to your corn. Mix together ½ cup of melted butter, 1/8 cup of minced cilantro, ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. of black pepper. Drizzle over 4 ears of freshly grilled corn and enjoy!
Who doesn’t love roasted chicken? Juicy, smoky and crispy-skinned chicken awaits, thanks to these handy vertical roasters. Simply fill the roaster with beer, wine or your favorite marinade and then stand the chicken upright over top. As the liquid evaporates, the escaping steam infuses your bird with incredible flavor for tasty, tender results. A great way to satisfy a crowd of wing, breast and thigh lovers all in 1 shot!
Grill Tip: Just like steaks, let whole chickens rest for 20 minutes or more for the juiciest results.
SLAY WITH A TRAY
Talk about one-pan meals made easy. Grill trays offer all the performance of high-heat cooking without the weight or added maintenance of cast iron. Fish. Chicken. Zucchini. And everything in between. These trays can handle it all. Plus, they keep delicate foods like shrimp and mushrooms from falling through the grates, too.
Grill Tip: Kids not a fan of veggies? Bacon makes everything better. Wrap a slice of bacon around an asparagus spear, secure with a toothpick and grill on the tray. The bacon imparts amazing flavor with no extra seasoning…and the kids will love it!
